Sardine Run at Protea Banks – a video

Updated Sunday, 29 January 2017

If it’s an adrenaline rush you want, I am sure this is one experience you would want to check out … The Greatest Shoal on Earth, as it has been named, sees thousands of visitors flock to the KwaZulu Natal east coast to witness the annual migration of millions of sardines. Hundreds of thousands of dolphins, sharks, whales and seabirds follow the impressive body of sardines as they move along the coast.

It is truly a magnificent spectacle for locals and visitors. Visitors will also enjoy a full programme of entertainment, including cultural activities and music shows.

Deep Sea Diving “Sardine Run” at Protea Banks. This takes place during June or July when the sardines migrate to give birth to their young.

The video tells all…
